R.I.P John Lyall -- West Ham's manager when I was growing up and by all accounts, a true gentleman. In the last 5 minutes I've read reminiscences of him graciously signing a get well card for a stranger on the street; allowing a 7 year old who'd travelled a long way to a game that was ultimately called off to take penalties at Upton Park instead; inviting a kid and his dad into the locker room to meet the players two hours before a match. That kind of stuff just doesn't happen any more.

For me, he was just West Ham's manager, and therefore a kind of demi-god.
